Its finally summer here in London (yay) it literally feels like I’m on vacation, okay well at least the weather does! All anticipation for summer clothes and makeup is finally here. For me this means wanting to change my hair again. I’ve always wanted to cut it shorter but I generally like long hair and think it looks better on me. Okay you short haired ladies are going to say ‘what about me?’ That’s another story… The bobs from the 60s (like Mrs Robinson above) are voluminous and give the same effect as teased long hair. Note they kind of look like Adele’s hair…what do you think about bobby voluminous hair? Still Long? Should I do it? Even if I have a square face?
Sometime last year I became interested in using rollers in my hair. I think it started because of my obsession with vintage and classic hair. I realized that all the women on the shows or movies are always running around the house with either rollers or perfect hair. After trying different ways to do, this I have figured out a quick way to do my hair with rollers. I really do get lots of compliments what I do this and its quite easy. Tell me what you think.
You will need:
1)Start with washing your hair and work in some heat protection gel.
2)Blow dry your hair until its 80% dry (make sure its still a bit damp). 5 min.
3) Divide the front part of your hair into three sections and put your hair into the pink rollers. Then mist hairspray all over. 5min
4) Divide back of hair into four to five sections and roll it onto the rollers and mist hairspray onto this. 5min.
You have now two options:
Blow dry: Blow dry your hair in rollers with a dryer remove rollers before you leave the house. 5min
Leave on Overnight: After you put the rollers on, spray your hair with hairspray and take the rollers to bed.
When you remove the rollers they will leave you looking a bit like goldilocks (see below).
What you need to do is turn your hair over and shake the curls with your hands. And Ta dah!
Okay I know that it’s a pretty bold statement and that some (okay maybe a lot) of french girls do comb their hair but hear me out. I studied abroad in France twice so I did a lot of personal research on the matter, mainly me staring at a bunch of girls (wierd, I know!) but one thing I noticed was that french girl’s hair always looked as if they hadn’t combed it but not in the bad way where you want to tell someone they need to comb their hair. They always look as if their hair just woke up in this perfect state of messy where it looks cool. You know the messy hair that you try to get by using some sort of texturizing spray. I’m not the only one to think this way because on random occaisions I have had non-french people who have studied abroad make this same remark.
Anyway I blow dried my hair yesterday and this morning I woke up and realized that my hair didn’t look too bad not combed so I thought I would share it with you. Also my hair has gotten a lot less frizzy (and curly) since I’ve gotten older. I’m sad about the curls but not so sad about the frizziness! Anyway here is a picture of me that I took on my computer which is why it’s so blurry. What do you think about french girl’s hair?
* disclaimer: I love French style and I have been known to tell French girls that I’m so jealous that they are just naturally gorgeous! Also sorry I was too lazy to put makeup on!
I apologize for the overload of videos on the blog not sure if you like them? But I am currently obsessed with watching and making little videos and tutorials. Anyway I am also currently preparing for festivals that I am not going to. With that said I love this cute little freepeople video on things to do with your hair! (I especially like the last one starting at 1:50). Anyway you can make the little mixed thread wrap using long pieces of fabric and suede but actually they are only $9.00 at Freepeople or you can get a handmade one from my friend Mogli in India from here (cheeky I know!) Take care!
